No one. Ukraine advances 50 km in a week in a terrain where the Wehrmacht once advanced 100km a week for two months straight, and media pretends it means Zelensky will have his parade in red square soon.
But European support might end. If France fails to get its NPPs running, there is no way to supply the country from Germany, they just draw too much electricity in winter, with the resistance heaters all running. How many days of dark and cold can they stomach before the government topples and they elect Le pen? How long for Germany? Can any of this limit weapon flows into Ukraine enough to make a difference? Probably not, the Americans will just ship to Poland directly. But how long will Americans be ready to pay for this war when America is in recession, which will happen soon, like first quarter of 2023? Does Russia have a chance of forcing a positive outcome then? I bet they consider these questions in the Kremlin, and they think it is worth a try. Just limit losses until everyone decides that things are too expensive with much of the world's energy supply off the market.

It's not that unreasonable. A good example from Finland is that many women who served in the FDF voluntarily have resigned from being reservists. Why? When they signed up they were young women wanting to challenge themselves. Now they might be mothers of young children. Should they be on the front lines if a war breaks out? Probably not. And the probability of a war coming to their doorstep has greatly increased (though still not very likely).

The same applies to men too. What a fun place to work at, wohoo pew pew I'll join the military! The percentage of Bundeswehr recruits who thought they might ever fight in a war was probably extremely low before this Russian invasion. Peoples' life situation and the external calculus around it changes and people adapt. That's normal human behavior.

Suggestion: stop consuming click/ragebait news and stop to think for a second. At least before posting :D

This wasn't even an ragebait article I quoted, in fact it was just some minor remark in the article, but I found it funny that people would actually sign up to be a soldier - the kind of people who are indeed supposed to go to war - and then chicken out when there is an actual war.

I'm afraid it's how human morality works in general. Even when Putin gives immoral orders, he remains emotionally detached from their execution (at least it's what one would normally expect in that situation). He may be even not fully aware of the nature and the scope of their consequences. Obviously he must be held responsible either way, but the situation doesn't really tell a lot in regards to how exactly low he has fallen as a human being.

The executives who get clearly immoral orders are a different matter. They have very little to excuse themselves ("I was just executing orders" is really the dumbest excuse one can come up with); executing every immoral order both fully reveals the depth of their degradation and pushes them even further. Please note that so far I have been completely disregarding the immortal acts engineered by the executives themselves, in which case the ruler may be held responsible only for criminal negligence at best.

It's really unsurprising that in most traditional societies even normal executioners who were just doing their jobs were actually pariahs - while no one would even theoretically object to criminals being executed.

How is that even related? Sharing the official discourse won't make you automatically sacrifice yourself for the greater good. People may be gullible (and it's hard not to be when the machine of state propaganda basically tells you what you subconsciously want to hear), but they aren't suicidal.

A new 1420 video that is related to the "who falls for this shit" discussion, video title
>Russians react to losing the war
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpTWE8ysNn0

Leads me to believe that quite many actually believe the state media. Of course there are many components that might skew the perception, like selecting only "controversial" opinions(on the wect) for the video, low sample size, dishonest answering, etc. etc. In any case, it's all so very tiresome.

Don't worry. If things go bad we'll be waiting for you in Moscow with the Poles :D But that's interesting. In Finland the entire population has a national service obligation, but only men are designated for mandatory military service. The national service has no active peace time component.

It's safe to say their expectations were perfectly in line with the ones of your government. So the change in the calculus was unexpected, and the reaction reasonable. Sure, training soldiers that then refuse to fight is definitely a bad thing. But understanding that they are people and not just numbers or machines should put that in perspective. Definitely a thing to worry about if the number of the objectors grows into considerable numbers, but gaining a large percentage increase to baseline isn't that bad on its own. It's all relative.

What's so suicidal about going to victorious war where there are no casualties? You do a morally right thing and raise 200k of roublemass per month. Good deal.

Mkay, going to war is uncomfortable even if you survive. But these people can't ever vote or go to putting, unless AP forces them through their employers. It even has to shitpost for them with help of troll factories. Since these people don't manifest themselves in physical reality, the most logical conclusion is to suppose that they don't exist and there is no any widespread support of war, only submission.

Not necessarily. It's not like the Bundeswehr never had any engagements anywhere. IEDs have killed more german soldiers than anything else since the last war. Also, you might get sent to Congo and get AIDS.
But yeah, I also think it was most likely a gamble "yeah I go study there, get a cushy welfare queen job and then fuck off after my few years of duty".
But nevertheless, when you are signing up to become a soldier, you should at least consider the possibility that you might have to wage war at one point or another, and I would expect people who sign up to become soldiers to at least have a basic readiness to fight and kill, because that is the point and the very essence of being a soldier and becoming a soldier and fully expecting to never ever having to fight is, imo, pretty naive.

Western media don't exactly produce fake news, but
  • they eagerly reproduce Ukrainian fake news (teh irradiated Russians from Chernobyl, sure);
  • they may feed general misinformation (Russian soldiers from Mongolia - sic! - who had never seen a real road before arriving to Ukraine, or something along those lines; if necessary, I can find what moronic journalist wrote that, but it definitely is not a single isolated brainfart but relatively common narrative; I wouldn't wonder if it's another example of simple copypaste from Ukrainian sources, but one way or another it also finds its way into the central Western mass-media).

Can you give an example of respected western mass media? I usually read a few shorter German articles over the week. Many are pro Ukrainian (people often cannot differentiate between a comment/opinion piece and a news item) but you will find debates on whether UA can win the war or not etc. I remember writings on many young people from eastern provinces getting recruited and send to Ukraine and dying there as, less people dying from big cities. Nothing of the Mongolian hyperbole you are giving here, and I don't even see why it is problematic to say so, it is simply recruiting in rural areas, the US could and probably does the same.

https://www.faz.net/aktuell/gesellschaft/trauerfeier-koenigin-elisabeth-ii/russland-diffamiert-die-queen-wegen-nichteinladung-zur-beerdigung-18321923.html?utm_source=pocket-newtab-global-de-DE

FAZ is an old and established German newspaper. They write in this article how Putin and this Kyrill guy find good words for the dead queen and Putin congratulating Charles. But then it is found out that Puton or a representative are not invited to the funeral.

The speaker of the minsitry of foreign affairs then declares
>Zakharova referred to young Elizabeth's membership in the Auxiliary Territorial Service, the women's branch of the British Army, in the final months of World War II to declare, according to Moscow's account of the Ukrainian War, that "British elites" today were on the side of "Nazis and their Ukrainian accomplices" who had been fought at the time.

So the tone is not friendly or goodwill anymore but butthurt.

But now for the interesting part when it comes to misinformation:

>While the Foreign Ministry spokeswoman at least praised the queen herself for "basically not interfering in politics," Russia's state television even went so far as to defame Elizabeth II personally. On Thursday, the program "60 Minutes" on the channel "Rossiya 1" showed black-and-white footage of a woman in a white costume throwing something to poorly dressed children as they picked it up from the ground. [source given is https://smotrim.ru/amp/video/2477520)]
>The presenter, Olga Skabeyeva, claimed the footage showed the young Elizabeth and said "Africans" would "not mourn" the queen's death because they remembered "exploitation and slavery." "So" Elizabeth "fed children from one of the subjugated peoples of Africa," Skabeyeva said, "like animals in the zoo. The video embodies the attitude of the West, especially the Anglo-Saxons, to the whole world, except to themselves, of course." In reality, the footage was shot more than a quarter of a century before Elizabeth was born; and not in Africa, but in what is now Vietnam, in what was then the French colony of Indochina; not Englishwomen are seen, but Frenchwomen, namely the wife and daughter of the governor-general at the time, Paul Doumer (1857 to 1932); and they do not throw bread to the children, but pieces of money.

So what is funny is that Russia will use colonizer rhetorics that is so frowned upon as leftist bs and then what is interesting is that this is supposedly aired on state TV has "blatant" misinformation. Are these things normal in western countries? I don't know but it hasn't been pointed out to me how we are deliberately misinformed with tactics like this. I don't mean being an ideologue and be pro ukrainian but deliberately take material and tell lies about it that can be checked.

I don't think so, but it's totally irrelevant to the argument, because we don't discuss whose mass-media are "better". We discuss whether Western mass-media spread misinformation as an element of war propaganda or not. And if in Cameroon newsreaders ate children alive during live air, it still couldn't influence that in the slightest.

Eh, who says this didn't happen? It is critical in the way that it says it is hard to verify since nobody is next to the soldiers at the front. Better be honest about the info fog than trying to verify what is not verifiable atm. You can still critically analyze war developments elsewhere.

>it's totally irrelevant to the argument, because we don't discuss whose mass-media are "better". We discuss whether Western mass-media spread misinformation as an element of war propaganda or not.

I don't discuss whose media is better, I want to discuss HOW the media does misinform (if it does) and that is a crucial question because as I pointed out before there is a difference between an opinion piece in some established western newspaper and deliberately labeling a video wrong to frame something accordingly (queen scorns the poor and is of colonizer the argument can be made, but base it on true stuff then). So yeah both parties will write in their favor, not the most interesting thing to point out, what I deem more interesting his how far parties are willing to go to propel this process.

My bad here - not IAEA itself (which only admitted that it cannot confirm anything), but a set of Western state and private experts from various agencies, like Edwin Lyman or Jeremy Gordon. And, frankly, it should be obvious to any more or less educated person with a head on his shoulders. After the 35 years and all the decontaminations, the likehood to stumble upon locations around the plant where the intensity of decay would be sufficient to give you acute radiation syndrome is totally comparable to the likehood of stumbling upon one million dollars in the same area.

Who cares what Russia considers to be it's territory? Like Crimea, these places will not gain wide international recognition as Russian territory, so they might as well claim whole Ukraine right now and launch the nukes.

Only magical thinking is considered sane now, I guess. Is there a chance that you have never seen a factory from the inside? I'll enlightened you some: factories make stuff. They do so with big machines that use energy. Lots of energy. Without energy, no stuff. Without stuff, no stuff to sell (or buy). Without stuff to sell, no (tax-)money for humanities faculties, regional philharmonic orchestras, museums, public transport, bike-lanes or heated busses so the homeless don't freeze or all the other things very smart very educated leftists like you like so much. Are you able to grasp that? I really guess not. Germany has created a class of know-it-alls that have no idea how stuff works. People who don't know plastic is oil, people who never even heard the words 'Haber-Bosch-Process' until last week, people who have somehow achieved a degree in something, but think paper is made by slicing trees very thinly. See Robert Habeck's idiotic talking on TV. He actually thinks you can shut down, ship nothing for months and not go bankrupt. And that guy is in charge of our economy. Boris Palmer explained it much better. But Boris Palmer is not completely out of touch with reality. That's why this self-important fat pig Ricarda Lang wanted to oust him so badly, she does not like reality. The green party thinks when they stick their fingers in their ears and sing very loudly, reality can't touch them. They suffer from what I call auto-phonological epistemics: 'everything I hear myself saying is a fact.'

Simply because it also makes sense military-wise. You can draft 2 millions no problem, but what will you equip them with? Infatry weaponry from the Cold War era? You don't need that much to stabilize the front, and assault capabilities would improve only marginally. Even if in reality they presume drafting twice as much, it won't make a big difference.

That chair when used to have a Russo-Ukrainian internet friend when I was in the army back in the 00s and we'd chat on MSN about war stuff. He was a veteran from the Chechen Wars and went to Georgia in 2008. Being the old-salt he would share videos and his experience fighting terries (or getting fucked by incompetence) and we had an agreement that in WW3 we'd stop to have a drink. We'd laugh about how different things were between our services, here if a bird crosses a firing range the whole operation is stopped but in Russia they would of course all try to hit the bird.

He was Ukrainian from the east but due to family stuff served in the Russian military and I think it's almost certain he would be dead by now.

Why so? The losses of Russia should be around 20-25k, meaning 15% of the total troops tops (most likely less), i.e. even theoretically not more than 30% of the frontline ground troops. From the purely statistical perspective his chances aren't very low - only if you have some very specific considerations.

The only meaningful way to protest in dictatorship is to smoke near military commissariats and government buildings. But that's too extreme for majority of people. Another way -- is to emigrate and at least don't pay taxes to people whom you don't support.

From what I heard from common acquaintances (infa 100%): many soldiers simply quit their job and go home, because it's legally possible (at least before today), sometimes entire squads do it. Given that they're often not paid as much money as promised, it's not surprising.

Idealistic nonsense (of the kind the "Liberals" like a lot).

I doubt, but of course I do not know, that prices will go higher than +100%, except for heating fuel so some full time lower end income family should still be able to manage, if they are not financially challenged that is. And I doubt the war will spill over but only the future will show.

>One child can be born almost any time when living in Germany, two kids already make a lot of mess and cost money.
Well, yes. I do not have children but I helped raise a bunch of brats in my friends circle and have family members born the last 20 years so I know a thing or two.

I will survive on the meager job I will start in October. I just cannot go to the restaurant or eat/drink a lot on the go and have to be careful in that regard. I fear the electricity and gas bill though. As many posts before and as I read today, the German government should put price controls instead of giving out 300€ to every old person and 200€ to every student and 300€ to every working person. Instead make the prices stable by government force and pay the rest for us.

Well, yes to basically all your points.

But I have to admit, I did some calculations the last 5 minutes and depending on the situation I got with 2 working adults @ shite job, as in shit pay, between 0 and 900€ excess, as in left after the month with all costs paid, one kid included, but since the settis may all differ that is the rough estimate I got, so my generalized estimation, that one can always surive as a family with 2 working adults, is wrong. It should still be possibly for the vast majority if they handle their finances with care, if the prices don't exceed +100% for shit excluding heating or electricity and if those don't go bonkers, if the flat rent is low and so on. Risks are manifold(?), one could lose the job, injury, sickness, things break...

I wish you the best, I hope the war will stop soon.

>what is price elasticity of demand
Energy markets are highly inelastic. Price fluctuations lead to small changes in demand. For example, the energy needed to produce a mass unit of ammonia is practically a natural constant. Forms of energy are not trivially exchangeable. Price swings are the nature of the game. Remember negative oil prices during COVID-19?

>what is the macro-economic benefit of arbitrage
10th grade economics, like I said. What you call 'speculation' is called arbitrage, and it lessens price shocks instead of worsening them. If I buy today because I think prices will be higher tomorrow, I drive prices today and give the market a chance to adapt. When will I stop thinking that prices tomorrow will be higher? At the point when I see market demand being met.

So the consensus is "partial" mobilization can mean whatever Putler wants. If one excludes planes and warships, roughly 1/3 of Russian more modern material is already scrap. Apparently(?) demonstrations are happening all over Russia or at least in major cities, rumours are people captured there get a free ticket to the front and not just to prison.

Whatever, Russia is finished.

Russia released some Anglo POWs in Saudi Arabia.
Aaand once again, Germany wont directly send modern German tanks and so on, seems like they will send tanks to other countries once produced and those countries will now or soon send tanks to Ukraine, probably dated soviet stuff. This kind of swap was done a bunch of times already...

Allow me to interject that a child's outcomes would really be affected by a world 15 years down the line. Remember that it likely made sense to have children when you were born given it coincided with the euphoria at end of the Cold War.

Africa is the most stark example of parents time horizon, baby booms occurred in waves following decolonisation and the post-war commodities boom. African children of course coming of age during the commodities crash and the emergence of AIDS making the situation 100x worse. Closer to home you had a sustained baby boom going on in the run-up to WWI.

So yes, "benis in bagina xDDD" really is as educated a guess as you can make. You can talk about cost but the biggest hurdle is the upfront on space.[/autism]

Eh yeah for the ones who made the right decision to an at the end unforeseeable future but I'm not talking about these contracts or speculations on prices going up or down but prices in reaction to information flows and their judgment as well as the sociology of markets as being herds basically, observers observing other observers, which is basically looking to what others do and not "reality". This influences prices, but is based on speculation of a future not existent and of others who also speculate on, speculations of speculations.

>the problems is "local" not world wide
I can't tell if you are a genuine retard or playing dumb. Like it is not trivially possible to substitute gas with oil, it is not trivially possible to substitute gas in Europe with gas in the US or the united Emirates. You need enough possibilities of arbitrage for a long time to make the investment into the vastly expensive infrastructure that does that possible. It's much easier with, for example, ICs that weigh ten grams each. Pack a ton of them into a plane, fly them around the world, ten million ICs at place A have now been converted into ten million ICs at place B.

>but I'm not talking about these contracts or speculations on prices going up or down but prices in reaction to information flows a
Suppose I have information you do not have. Based on that information, I adapt my market activity. That incorporates the information I have into the price of the good traded and gives you a chance to adapt your market activity in turn, without having access to the information I have. A good thing, isn't it? Huge advantage to government-regulated pricing where resources are (mis-)allocated by beurocrats and will be dealt on black market. A fertilizer plant in a regulated market needs more gas, but prices are fixed and they have been allocated a fixed amount. What can they do? They have to trade in some of their product for gas. Example of how this could work: A amount of fertilizer is given to a farmer, he will pay in potatoes which will then be give to a fries factory which will then hand back half of the potatoes turned to fries and use the other half for their own purposes. Your half will be enough to supply some restaurant for a quarter of a year, the restaurant will in turn hold the wedding of some beurocrats daughter who will pay for it by increasing your gas allocation. I am certain that such deals would be made. All price regulation does is making currency worthless.

Regulated prices do not increase supply, either. There is a limited amount of everything to go round. You can not just regulate prices for Lamborghinis and think that then, everyone will be able to afford one and everyone will be driving Lamborghinis. I hope you can figure out why that won't work. Same with gas.

>markets as being herds basically, observers observing other observers, which is basically looking to what others do and not "reality".
Prices for gas in Europe are high because almost all Russian gas is off the market and less gas comes into Europe. But it is impossible to burn gas at a greater rate than the rate of influx for extended periods of time. For supply to meet demand, prices need to increase. Because the inelastic nature of the market, gas prices will increase vastly, as we have seen. Supply can be increased some, but only at a very high cost. For example, LNG tankers headed for Pakistani ports have been turned around mid-sea to Europe, sometimes only miles away from port. For such breaches of contacts to be profitable, there have to be huge incentives in the form of very high prices. But demand still has to be reduced, and this is happening. Energy intensive production is being shut down, as it is no longer profitable. People are getting used to cold homes and cold showers.

If, based on prudent analysis, you think taking Russian gas of the European market does not lead to a decrease in supply that justifies the current prices, i. e. current prices are too high and will reduce demand/increase supply to a point where demand can be more than met by supply, i.e. there will be an oversupply of gas in the next weeks or months, I highly advice you too short gas contracts and become rich. Because in that case, the gas bubble will burst. Just do it and become rich, since you are, once again, smarter than the market. Same as with US bond yields, market has it wrong, there will be no recession in the US, you have it right. Rates are up another .75%, by the way. But go on, say the FED is overplaying their hand, they are just bluffing, put your chips on the table...

I am not convinced that Americans will think it just dandy when they are out of a job and on food-stamps, and every week, Congress decides to send hundreds or thousands more missiles worth billions of dollars halfway around the globe. Because having decent health insurance or decent food or a roof over their head might be more important to Americans than blowing up Russian munitions depots in Ukraine. But opinions on that seem to differ.

Regarding the mobilization and how it could affect Kazakhstan.
I think for US this "mess" is still just around the corner, BUT IF OUR authorities continue to "bring in" all sorts of "investors" from all over the world in such an unsettled time, then we may be in even more "mess" than Ukrainians and/or Russians, because THEY are involved in "ONLY" two sides - Russia and NATO. THEY have "ONLY" 2 parties involved - Russia and NATO (this NATO is already active in Ukraine NOW and today even the German state press is full of articles about the West openly saying it is going to build a "European Israel" on the territory of present-day Ukraine! We should not forget that in/in Ukraine, EVERYTHING also started with a MASSIVE non-stop importation of "western investors" into the country! So, IF WE now also, like the Ukrainians once did, start importing all these amsrcise long "lists" of various "investors", then WE and OUR country could become MORE ill and MORE difficult than the Ukrainians and/or the Russians taken together, because in the case of OUR country, WE could be MORE ill and MORE difficult than the Ukrainians and/or the Russians taken together, because if the Ukrainians and/or the Russians are not able to get their money back, then WE and OUR country could be more ill. In the case of OUR country, China has "committed" to "fight" for our integrity, and there are a lot of Russian companies, and now if the Amerian companies come in - THAT is when it will start :)))! After all, already now the Amerian authorities are ALL PUNCHING for "non-participation in sanctions against Russia" - and now listen to the WEST politicians who are already calling for SANCTIONS against CHINA! Geez, I can't even imagine HOW "fucked up" things could get if ALL parties suddenly start calling for us to "teach" and "punish" inside our country for "not participating in sanctions" and for not driving one or the other side out of the country :)))!
Because we are a small country that has no serious military resources and technology, the "big powers" will try to solve everything for us! Maybe firstly by some unwarranted way, through "friction", creating "dirty tricks" for enterprises and companies of the opposite side, and then they can start a military action inside our country - and then it will be a REAL "mess" :)))! So we have to be VERY VERY WARNING now and listen to those speeches that Western politicians are saying, calling slowly but surely for SANCTIONS against CHINA - our country is already frightened by Americans for we are supposedly "violating" their Western sanctions against Russia - and IF the Western countries and "elites" suddenly decide to do the same against China, I can't even imagine what will happen - what we will eat and what we will wear, and where we will get our food from - there are NO MANUFACTURED FOODS in our country on store shelves (we see only Russian products, and those are the only ones that I see in Russia). And those Ostensibly "Western" foodstuffs are ALSO made from RUSSIAN "raw" materials, for example, the same Ostensibly "German muesli" is 100% made from Russian raw materials. raw materials, ALSO "Italian spaghetti", even ALSO "Italian" rice and ALSO "Italian tomato paste" are from China (although labels are "European" and in reality ALL ALSO "Western" food products are either from Russia, Or Chinese (even in Europe itself), but WHAT should we wear and where should we get our equipment from if suddenly Western countries introduce exactly the same "sanctions" and propose to China and force us not to "violate" the Western sanctions! And IF WE now begin to lure American and other Western "investors" to us en masse, and IF their "condition" is that we should not buy or sell anything from our neighbors (only to the naked Saxons, who don't even produce anything themselves(, then there is a risk that IF WE actually see this "mess" in its FULL "glory" in OUR country, and we might even starve to death (without Russian products)! !! And IF THE MASSIVE American "investors" imported by OUR authorities will also start sneaking their "military gizmos" into our country, then STILL not only Russia, but also China will see this as a threat to their countries - and THEN there will be even more "mess" than in / in Ukraine! Yes, I am 100% sure that the naked Saxons, Europeans and Jews will simply NOT allow REAL nuclear actions in/in Ukraine - they will try to "just" REDUCE the "field of action" towards OUR country - for OUR territory is a "very suitable option" for NUCLEAR military actions, because. Because OUR country is FAR FROM América, Britain, Europa, Israel and even from PEKIN (well, the Chinese do not think much about Uighurs, as well as the Europeans do not think about real Ukrainians-Slavs at all)! It is a long way to Moscow! THAT is WHY IT IS GREAT that OUR Powers are so insanely NOW starting to flood our country with Germans who are far away from OUR country, thereby endangering OUR country!
So it is a waste of time for our authorities to try to lure American and brazen Saxon "investors" to us - it looks as if the VICTIMS themselves persuade a rapist to come to their home and steal from them! I still understand the cooperation with the neighbors, because they are neighbors, but at this DANGEROUS (!) STAGE of historical development to drag in or allow to enter the territory of far-flung and crazy brazen naglosaks - this is FAILURE on the part of OUR GOVERNORS! WHICH FUCKING fool can try to "profit" at the expense of grief and misfortune of OTHER countries in such an EASY and SAFE time, does not understand what kind of trouble he himself may get into in the future! The best thing for OUR country would be to WAIT until it is unclear what will happen and how this present war in/on Ukraine between Russia and NATO will end, instead of trying to seek profits at such a terrible time! Although who knows, maybe OUR authorities want to wait it out - maybe the nerve of the Saxons and the Amerks are FORCING OUR authorities to act so INCREDIBLY! BUT the latest events in OUR country are VERY alarming - parallel arrivals of the Chinese leader and the Chinese, forcing the renaming of the capital, a summons to the United States, and now even pressure on OUR president by even the Austrian authorities and the Red Cross to compel us to "plant the Afghans, Pakistanis, etc." from Europe (from the EU). from Europe (aha, mercenary thugs trained in American military camps in Germany, so that they can carry out their raids from inside our country)! In short "bugger" is also that OUR government is pressing - and from SEVERAL sides at once (and Americans, and the Chinese, and Russians, and even the Washington Pope put his "conditions" to us! In such a situation it would have been better to simply declare neutrality and not become a "NEW and even more dangerous plane of war, with even more "participants" than in / in Ukraine and with an even greater risk of nuclear collisions than in / in Ukraine)!

Brave idiots. No normal Russian (I mean, no sane Russian with normal IQ) should believe the government in the first place. Also it may be surprising to someone but "controlling the 1000 km long line of contact" means exactly sitting in the frontline trenches and take occasional shells and sniper shots; in the worst case scenario you'll find yourself in the sector of an enemy breakthrough and will likely die.
And yes, in the regions they're already conscripting people whom they shouldn't conscript in theory.

Of course, some groups of opposition and the Ukrainians are already obviously trying to spread panic, but that fact hardly can work as some sort of consolation.

>Charles Michel favors opening EU to fleeing Russians

>Europe should allow in Russian citizens seeking to flee the country, European Council President Charles Michel said, as he blasted Russia’s “web of lies” in an address to the United Nations General Assembly. In an interview with POLITICO on the sidelines of the U.N. meeting in New York, Michel said that the EU should show an “openness to those who don’t want to be instrumentalized by the Kremlin.” The announcement by Putin of a partial mobilization of troops earlier this week had changed the dynamic of the war, he said.

>Ambassadors will likely discuss the options that might be available to the EU at Monday’s meeting. Among the possibilities is that the EU could grant humanitarian status to certain incoming Russian citizens, rather than refugee status. While the EU activated its special Temporary Protection Directive for the first time in its history in March, giving Ukrainians the right to live and work in the European Union for a set period of time, it is unlikely that such a scheme will be introduced for Russians.

>In particular, some Baltic countries are concerned that opening the door to Russians could allow pro-Putin operatives to enter the EU. Finland closed its doors to Russian tourists on Friday after the number of people arriving at the Finland-Russia border soared in recent days. However, the German government indicated that it is open to taking Russian dissenters who are facing serious oppression.

It's regarded as the geopolitical chokepoint for Russia similar to India's chicken's neck but with more existential issues. If you cross that distance you cut off Southern Russia which has historically been important in the First and Second World War (for fuel, food) and more generally it opens the entirety of the Russian heartland to attack (important for history).

I don't know about this. Picrel of the one of the border crossings about ten minutes ago, doesn't look that closed to me. Though from what I've heard the border will probably be closed from tourists next week perhaps. Work, education and family visits will still be allowed.

Remains to be seen how the Central European desires to let Russians into Schengen area develops since it's very much not inline with what Eastern Europe wants. Finland hasn't really been eager to do anything, though there seems to be strong support for closing the border.

See how they struggle to equip, instruct and generally train them all.

I just read a comment on how the war is pushing energy adaptations in Europe, the hopes of the green deal. I'm still a bit skeptical that this war will actually push "green" energy but who knows.
I think more than ever the future becomes quite uncertain again (for many people) but what I think is certain is that we won't have Russian overlords in 10 years.

Most of them have been trained when they were conscripts. The point of military training is to drill the basic steps into people so that they can perform them under stress, decades later, without thinking for one second. They will be handed out the equipment they were trained in from the depots. Russia does not throw away anything, ever.

You sound like all of us without any (serious) military and war experience tbh. Whatever, I don't think being a conscript (years ago) prepares you for a full-blown war situation. Remember the conscripts from the beginning of the special operations? Given that Russian equipment makes any significant difference. For months now they just hammer artillery around the same line. Looks like military technology is not everything to make a difference.

I wonder how many POWs Ukraine can manage. Especially once their command and control is cut.

>Russian soldiers who surrender to Ukraine will be treated in a "civilised manner", Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said. In his nightly address, Mr Zelensky appealed to Russians to run away or surrender once at the front. It comes after Vladimir Putin signed a law doubling the punishment for Russian soldiers who desert or disobey orders.

It's almost a certainty at this point thanks to simple necessity. Europe was heading towards decarbonisation by mid-century but now it seems like the only option, which signals how grim Russia's future will be even if there's a peace deal in Ukraine tomorrow.

The new Liz Government here is making noise about North Sea Expansion (it's well into end of life) and Fracking (unfeasible - even its biggest advocates say so https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/sep/21/liz-truss-fracking-britain-economic-political-low-carbon-cuadrilla) but in reality the country is going into overdrive on SMRs in partnership with Japan to serve as the backbone of a future green grid. If things stay as they are or get worse you'll also have a covid-style splurge where anyone proposing solutions unlocks infinite money direct from the Treasury.

None of that is going to happen in Germany. Renewables are impossible because Seppeln don't want to build the grid. There are even protests against a grid-scale battery in Germany, because of electric smog. Bavarians refuse to built powerlines. There can't be any fracking for domestic natural gas, it has been banned, the federal government will not lift the ban. There can't be any new nuclear energy, even now, government wants to stick to the plan and shut down Germany's last two remaining nuclear reactors by the end of the year.
Renewables is a fantasy energy source, anyway, it does not work without storage technologies that do not exist. Everything else is magical thinking of people who can't do simple math.

Very much agree. Though the rate of this change will really sting economically both Europe and Russia. Though for Russia it's not just the loss of energy sales, Rosatom would've had loads of customers for building NPPs in Europe, probably not so much any more. (We already cancelled one project that was about to start just when the war started.) And all the other industries as well...

Let me elaborate on this. Let's suppose sodium ion batteries hit on big and we soon can buy them for $40/kWh, which is ridiculously cheap as far as battery technologies go. Let's further say we need 30 days of storage capacity, because winters can be calm and dark. That is an investment of $2000 in storage for my 600kWh p.a. alone, and it does not include anything we would need for electric cars or heat-pumps or industry. At a lifespan of 10 years, that battery would increase my electricity bill by $200 a year, and I use electricity very little. It would mean an additional cost of $1000 annually for the average family, on top of the highest electricity prices in the world, and it would be far too expensive for industry.

The French and the Americans are horrendously slow and over budget, they have proven that. Rolls Royces SMRs are bullshit, in my opinion. There is a reason nuclear reactors were scaled up in the sixties and seventies instead of building submarine reactors on land. (Thermal efficiency, safety).
